The chub is a great lure angling target and is widespread in our rivers. It can be spooked easily, but is quite catchable due to its greedy nature. The chub can take all types of lures but lure at night can hook you a lunker!


Chub can be targeted throughout of the year (excluding the close season) but summer is best.


A day and night feeder, sessions of either full or ½ days can be booked and include evening and night sessions.

Tackle & Lures

Chub can be targeted on most lure types, the most successful on a given day is determined by a number of factors. Shortish rods (7’-7’6”) in the medium light range coupled to reels with 15-20lb braid.


The location for sessions for chub will be decided near the date of the booking dependant on forecast conditions. You will need a valid rod license. Day tickets will be purchased where necessary.
